Tooth decay is considered the single most common chronic childhood disease, and it accounts for hundreds of hours of lost school time. By assessing children every six months to one year, we are able to identify and treat problematic areas in the mouth with procedures such as white fillings to treat existing cavities and fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth between cleanings. Early dental visits also help us to identify problems that may affect proper nutritional intake due to an improper bite, identify and treat concerns related to speech development, habit control for thumb sucking and other oral habits that may impact the health of the teeth and gums, as well as to diagnose any problems with how the teeth are erupting so a plan for future orthodontic intervention can be considered.
Our team of dental professionals will educate your child in a fun, interactive, and positive manner to emphasize the importance of how proper brushing, flossing, and healthy nutrition impacts their oral health. By following these guidelines, it is our goal to help your child grow up with healthy teeth and gums that will last them a lifetime!
